I found C) 43.6 cm^2 I used the fact that the area is equal to radius*angle But the angle has to be in radians (NOT degrees!) I change the angle into radians using the proportion [latex] \pi :180^{o} = x : 100^{o} [/latex] and I got x=[latex] \frac{100* \pi }{180} = \frac{5}{9} \pi [/latex] rad So: Area=[latex]25* \frac{5}{9}*3.14=43.6 cm^{2} [/latex]
